Dr. Lisa Su had a few guests on stage such as Twitters senior engineer Jen Frasier, but the last one was likely the most interesting and that was Google’s Bart Sano. He talked about his partnership with AMD and the use of EPYC Rome in their data centers. Which they have already been working on putting into use. Su mentioned that Google has already been using EPYC Rome and that they were the first to use the new line up of processors.
